Shadows on the Moon

author: Zoe Marriott

Sixteen-year-old Suzume is a shadow weaver, trained in the magical art of illusion. She can be anyone she wants to be -- except herself. Is she the girl of noble birth, trapped by the tyranny of her motherís new husband, Lord Terayama? A lowly drudge scraping a living in the ashes of Terayamaís kitchens? Or Yue, the most beautiful courtesan in the Moonlit Lands? Even Suzume is no longer sure of her true identity. But she is determined to steal the heart of the Moon Prince, and exact revenge on her stepfather for the death of her family. And nothing will stop her. Not even her love for fellow shadow weaver Otieno, the one man who can see through her illusions...

Set in a faery tale version of ancient Japan, Shadows on the Moon shakes up the Cinderella story with its brave, resourceful and passionate heroine.

A powerful tale of magic, love, and revenge set in fairy-tale Japan.

author’s comments:
ZoŽ Marriott is the author of The Swan Kingdom and Daughter of the Flames. About Shadows on the Moon, she says, "I never liked Cinderella as a little girl. I hated the fact that she needed someone else to come along and rescue her. Then it occurred to me: what if Cinderella were strong and brave - and out for revenge all along?" ZoŽ Marriott lives in England.
